There is wonder in most everything I see

Not a cloud in the sky Got the sun in my eyes

And I won't be surprised if it's a dream

Is the love that I've found ever since you've been around
是你來了之後帶給我的愛
Your love's put me at the top of the world

Something in the wind has learned my name

And it's tellin' me that things are not the same

In the leaves on the trees and the touch of the breeze
